Firefighting foam concentrates for aircraft

Aircraft fire protection is a public safety issue. Airports, aerodromes, heliports, helidecks, aircraft hangar, helistations are faced with water-immiscible flammable liquids risk, class B – hydrocarbon fires, such as kerosene, gasoline, landing gear, engine, fuel line fire.

Aircraft firefighting foam concentrates must comply with ICAO standard internationally (International Civil Aviation Organization), and acceptance by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States. Foam concentrate is mostly contained within ARFF vehicle (Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting). The foam is applied on a direct application by the airport fire truck long distance with the help of monitor. Small fires, that can’t be reach by the aircraft vehicle, can be put out with a fire hand line combined with proportioning device.

In airport emergencies, every minute counts. The foam adheres to vertical surfaces to cool aircraft parts such as the fuselage and the body allowing passenger evacuation. Firefighting foam flows rapidly over the fuel spill coating the fuel and cutting off oxygen supply in order to extinguish aircraft fire in few minutes and preventing reignition.

Soil and ground water contamination near airports and military bases is an emergency issue. With its strong experience in eco-friendly foams and aircraft fire safety, BIOEX provides 100% Fluorine-Free Foam (F3) dedicated to aircraft fire extinguishment.

Tested and approved by many international airports, ECOPOL A/A+ Newtonian Fluorine-Free Foams meet environmental concerns and fire extinguishing performances on hydrocarbon fires, approved by ICAO standard. Our aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) using only C6 surfactants is also efficient on aircraft fire extinguishment.

BIOEX foams can be used in low, medium and high expansion depending on the fire scenario.
